Acrylic (Methyl methacrylate) – Perspex, Plexiglas

Perspex and Plexiglas are trademarked names for this type of acrylic material which, given its transparency, is often likened to glass. Attachable by most organic solvents, acrylic is nevertheless resistant to water, aqueous salt solutions, alkalis, dilute acids and also most detergents and common household substances. Tough and durable, it can still be cut using conventional woodworking or metal tools. Acrylic can be heat-bent or shaped and cemented – but if you need your plastic cut to size or shaped, our plastic machining and fabrication services are the perfect solution. Acrylic is also a good thermal insulator. We can machine Perspex tubes, rods, and sheets.

Tubes and round rods are available in clear acrylic, whilst acrylic sheets can be tinted or coloured in a variety of hues.
